Come Wonder With Carmel Academy This Year!
Carmel Is Thrilled To Welcome Back Veteran Early Childhood Educator Julie Thaler to Lead New Transitional Kindergarten Program
"What guides my approach to early childhood education is developing a relationship with each child, and embracing their individuality. Its allowing my students to use all of their senses. Its child led and driven by their desire to understand more. It trusts that each child is a capable learner and supports individual choices and higher order thinking. Its about exploration and freedom of creativity. It allows students to accomplish goals in their own time, while respecting where they are developmentally. It understands the value of play. Its unhurried and embraced. Its being in the moment.”

Transitional kindergarten bridges preschool and kindergarten, and gives students a head start that will yield future academic success. Carmel’s program provides students with a strong foundation for success in elementary school. Our program’s project-based curriculum follows the standards of the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) and incorporates Bank Street and Reggio Emilia approaches to early childhood learning. Contact our Director of Admissions Daneet Brill to learn more about our newest addition to our early childhood education program.
